So I was asked to take the swab stick up and put it 5 seconds by my throat on the left and 5 seconds on the right.

I couldn't hold it much longer and coughed out loud because if you stick something by your throat, you cannot hold it.

But I did put the stick right up my nose, the furthest way for 11 seconds.

Did I do it properly?

You’ll find out if you done it right as you’ll have either a positive or negative result. If you done it wrong you’ll get an inconclusive result

not necessarily. they might just get a false negative.

We are told to say 10-15 second on each tonsil and then another 10 seconds up one nostril.

To be honest I think they already saw this happening and said 10 seconds when the real time was about 5 or something, because the same thing happened to me and my sister and I think it's pretty common
